I could not resist this delicate little treat that went down oh so well!
I cheated and bought the pastry shells from the supermarket, but here is the recipe for the filling.
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 T plain flour
- 1 dash Nutmeg
- 1 dash Garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
- 2 Tablespoons grated tasty Cheese + extra for the top
- ¾ cup picked crab meat
- ½ Spanish onion – finely diced
Place the milk, flour, nutmeg and garlic in a saucepan and whisk. Heat over a gentle heat until thickened. Add the cheese and onion and cook for a few minutes. The sauce should be quite thick, but not a set gel. Stir through the crab and season with salt and pepper to your liking, be careful not to over season and over power the delicate flavour of the crab.
Spread the cases (12 canapé sized cases) onto a tray, and fill with the mixture and sprinkle with the additional cheese. Place under a grill until the cheese browns, and serve immediately. ENJOY!
